Chase Butler is a Birmingham-based singer and songwriter who spends the majority of his free-time in a bedroom recording music. "There's something about recording and producing your own stuff that helps keep the original personality and soul of a song intact," he commented, "you work on your own time whether it is nine at night or four in the morning--the freedom is unlimited...until the people below me hit their ceiling with a broomstick in frustration."
He views songwriting as a conclusion to a lot of premises, "life has a lot of open-ends and tangles, songs help to organize." He aims to be passionate, honest, and timeless in what he concocts as a musician in the hopes of producing something original and meaningful.
"I can remember as a ten year-old sitting at a piano and playing Fur Elise by Beethoven--not so well, I might add--for one of my mom's friends. She started crying and I had no idea why at the time, but later on in my life the memory resurfaced and I came to this conclusion: there is great power in stringing together notes. Hearts are moved and the soul is encouraged...a good song can never die. Every person has a soundtrack to their life, and my goal is to make loud my own in hopes of connecting paths with someone else." Chase tries to play where he can, whether it is a local bar, coffee shop, music venue, or church.
